Intelligent Brake Assist with
Forward Collision Warning
Anticipate the Road Ahead
Using the system's laser range finder, Forward Collision Warning (FCW)[*] helps alert the driver of a potential collision by providing a visual and audible warning. If the driver doesn't respond, and a collision cannot be avoided, Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA)[*] automatically engages the brakes to help reduce collision speed and impact, helping to mitigate the consequences of the accident.

Respond to the Unexpected
To help enhance rear-wheel grip when accelerating, the Traction Control System senses wheel spin and automatically reduces engine output and/or brakes the spinning wheel to help give you surer foothold. Acting in tandem with the Traction Control System, Vehicle Dynamic Control[*] (VDC) compares actual vehicle cornering performance to the driver's input, adjusting power levels and applying appropriate brake pressure to individual wheels to help correct oversteer or understeer, helping keep the vehicle on the steered path.

The Infiniti Advanced Air Bag System (AABS)[*] provides dual-stage front supplemental air bags with sensors that adjust inflation rates depending on crash severity and seat belt usage. Front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags help provide additional protection for front occupants. Roof-mounted curtain supplemental air bags deploy from the headliner above the windows, helping to give outboard occupants enhanced head protection in certain side impact and rollover events.
Front-seat Active Head Restraints help reduce whiplash-type injuries, seat belt pretensioners work to help protect occupants in the event of certain types of collision, and Zone Body construction helps maintain the integrity of the passenger compartment. All are ways in which Infiniti technology helps to provide a more comfortable and safer driving experience.
Lane Departure Warning and
Lane Departure Prevention
Lane Departure Warning (LDW)[*] and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP)[*] help keep your vehicle from unintentionally drifting from your lane. The available system utilizes a camera to monitor the distance between the vehicle and clearly visible lane markings, and when the vehicle drifts unintentionally towards the lane markers, the system first sounds an audible warning. Then it will lightly apply selected brakes to help ease your vehicle back into its lane.
